Made In the USA
Koontucky Maine Coons was established in 1984 in
Louisville, Kentucky. Since that time we have dedicated our lives to the preservation,
protection and improvement of the Maine Coon breed. We are a long-standing MCBFA
Breeder Member and CFA Cattery of Excellence. Breeding and showing these
wonderful cats has been and continues to be our passion. Our cats are our family
and live with us in our home. Their health and well-being is given every consideration.
In 1998 Koontucky relocated to Michigan.
In 1993, we were blessed to acquire
RW SGC Coonceit
Majerle of Koontucky OS
from Judith Null (pictured above). He was "The World's Most
Perfect Cat!" He
exemplifies the Maine Coon Cat standard both in type and temperament. In his
first show, at four months and two days old, he was awarded six Best All Breed
Kitten awards. He only attended four shows in 1994. Even with limited showing, he
was awarded the
title of Supreme Grand Champion, Best Maine Coon Cat in the TICA
Great Lakes Region, Second Best All Breed Cat in the Great Lakes Region and four "Best of
The Best In Show" awards. Majerle has passed on his OUTSTANDING looks and
temperament to his sons and daughters. Majerle lost his battle with fibro
sarcoma on March 16, 2000 and is waiting for me at
Bridge. Words are not adequate to express our thanks to Judith
Null for this once in a lifetime cat. We miss him desperately
From 1996 to 2009 Koontucky developed several new foundation
lines from native New England breeding stock. We partnered with other breeders
working with foundation lines to bring further diversity to the Maine Coon gene
pool. We are very pleased that these
lines can be found throughout the world. Over the next year, we
will be adding historical information about these cats to our website
Koontucky specializes in variations of silver. But we produce kittens of all
colors, with the exception of solid white. We allow our kittens to go to their new families after twelve weeks of age,
but we prefer they stay with their litter mates until they are sixteen weeks of age. At
weeks, they are fully weaned, confident, socialized and vaccinated.
Our kittens are raised on a natural raw meat diet. Please carefully read
pages. Any sudden change from a raw diet will cause digestive
upset. Please have the necessary ingredients at home BEFORE you
come to pick up your kitten. Our diet is easy to make and the
ingredients are easy to buy. All the guess work is
taken out of it for you. Our kittens will also transition
easily to a premium grain free
such as Orijen, Honest Kitchen or Nature's Logic cat food. Our kittens are placed with a written sales contract, veterinary certificate and a health guarantee.
We will provide a pedigree at the time of sale. However, we furnish registration
papers for pet kittens only with written confirmation of neuter/spay from a
We are dedicated to health testing. We screen our cats for Hip Dysplasia,
Spinal Muscular Atrophy,
Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency and Hypertrophic
Cardiomyopathy. We utilize
both DNA testing and the MSU team of board certified cardiologists. Our
cattery is certified FeLV and FIV negative.
We are proud to be
Cat Kingpin Certified.
